Dave and the team are the best!! They are honest, professional, caring and I could not recommend them more highly. If you need a pet sitter or a dog trainer then please contact them.


Thank you Pawfessionals!!! For the treats you left behind, the list of daily achievements together, the personalised note, and most importantly your care and attention for Rummie. We couldn’t have gone away without you! So pawfessional. Eternally grateful,

Leah and Brian (and Rummie.)

Michael & I wanted to say a huge thank you for taking such great care of our little Teddy while we were away. We were amazed at how happy & healthy he looked & couldn’t believe how he had taken to you. The photos were such a nice way to see how he was doing. Also a big thank you for keeping everything so clean & tidy. You guys are fabulous!

Hi David,

Thank you very much for taking care of Phillip, Chelsea and Tessa over the past few weeks. We were so impressed with your service. It”s very stressful to leave our furry little family behind when we go away, but knowing you were there taking such great care of them helped ease the worry substantially. We will definitely be in touch again in the future when we go away.

Sincere thanks and best wishes,


A big thank you to the Pawfessionals team. They went above and beyond looking after our birds and house while we were away on holiday. I highly recommend giving them a call if you need someone to care for your pets while you are on holiday or any of the other great services they offer.


My husband and I adopted an 11 month old staffy x Bella a few weeks ago. She is our 1st dog ever so we decided to get help from a professional trainer. After doing some research on the internet we came across thepawfessionals.com.au. We were so impressed by David’s videos where he works with his german shepard Bear that we decided to give him a call and book a session. David came to our house and answered all the questions we had and demonstrated basic commands we requested like Sit, Down, Come, Heel etc. After that he let us try the commands ourselves and corrected occasional mistakes we made.

After our scheduled 1 hour session, David was kind enough to also take Bella and us to our local park to assess how Bella was walking on leash and hopefully how she interacts with other dogs. As with the basic command training this was very successful. Overall David spent over 2 hours with us but he still only charged us for 1 hour. He also encouraged us to give him a call anytime we need help or advice.

On top of that he invited me to join him when he walks his clients” dogs. Fortunately I have time to join David 3 times a week and it’s been a great benefit to both Bella and I. I am constantly gaining confidence and Bella gets to play with her new buddies.

I would recommend The Pawfessionals to anybody. If you have a new puppy or any adult dog, David will do everything in his power to help with any problem you might have as dogs are his passion and he wants to do right by them.

Don’t expect miracles to happen over night though. You have to work hard with your best friend on a daily basis and be patient. The results will come. Good luck!

Thanks for keeping an eye on Bitty Rat over Christmas! He was happy and healthy when we got home. It was great to see picture and video updates, thank you! Great work!


Hello David

We really appreciate your professionalism and especially sending these photos. We just love them and especially showing he had such a great time!

Thank you for putting so much into him while we were away.

Many thanks again! Until next time,

Best wishes,

Mandy, Michael and Charlie!!

I used The Pawfessionals to look after my cat when I was away for a few days. David came around to meet my cat, Molly, before I went away and she took an instant liking to him. He not only fed her, cleaned her litter tray but he also spent time playing with her. He kept me updated on how she was and he even sent me a photo of her playing with her toys! I came home to a happy contented cat, I will definitely use The Pawfessionals again and I highly recommend them.


I adopted a dog from the pound a few years ago. He was estimated to be 2 years of age when we got him and had a few behavioural issues, like barking and jumping up – particularly on the back door. Dave gave me some valuable tips and advice on how to manage and correct the behaviour. It was an amazing help – he had suggestions I hadn”t thought of trying before.

It all worked! I have a much better behaved pup now thanks to Dave.



We would like to thank-you for the help you gave us in advising us in the right way to train Belle better than what we were doing.

She was a “rescue type dog” with no formal training, would not come when called, totally frantic to get to her food, & jumping up most of the time.

Since your visit we have seen a noticeable change in her behaviour, in particular her feeding habits, coming when called etc., she is a better behaved dog, & while a “work in progress” is of course ongoing we are extremely happy that we had you to help us with OUR training for her training

Dear David,

Thanks for coming over this week to meet myself, Greta and Pharaoh. I was impressed by your level of professionalism and experience with dogs over the years. I look forward to having you take good care of my dogs.

Best wishes,


I just want to thank David from the Pawfessionals, who came to look after my energetic, small poodle – Mocha over 4 days. His attention to detail was fantastic. He cleaned up her mess, fed her, and even collected my mail whilst I was away!

Also during this time there were strong winds – a gate panel blew over… David came to the rescue and propped it up so my dog couldn’t escape.

I would strongly recommend him and will definitely use his services again.

Thanks David,


Hi David,

Thanks for the photos and thanks for your service. I’m glad I found you.I will use you again when next we go on holidays.

Regards, Sylvia

Thank you for taking such good care of her! Feeling very comfortable that she’s in reliable hands while I’m away.


You took such great care of Max, we were very grateful. He was happy and healthy when we got home.


Thanks David. You were outstanding and our boys responded well beyond our expectations.
